Thunk hit 800,000 visitors earlier this week. That’s huge. I’ve had blogs that have had more hits than this one and clearly I’ve been neglecting it as a creative outlet, but still – the traffic endures and the hits keep coming. Congrats to Thunk Different, Apple, Google, Sex, iPhone’s, and every other keyword that have struck a chord and bring a daily average of 1,200 hits to this exact site.

iUse his hardware, follow his company, his phone… all his. And he is here to stay. iT’s too bad he isn’t doing the macworld 2009 opener, but after dual core, iphone, multitouch, emulation, 64 bit architecture, unix certified os, and some of the coolest presentations known in the tech world… he doesn’t have to. iCould tell he was a bit under the weather last year, and he made a few mistakes, perhaps due to stress, his condition or what have you. all is good though – we love the guy and iAm glad he is alright.

As I went to choose the less bloat heavy Safari browser today over my extension-heavy firefox, I noticed something different, yet curiously the same. Yahoo, my lazily decided default homepage had changed (to m.yahoo.com), or had it? Take a look and decide for yourself… HERE

Google’s iPhone for Apple’s App Store coming on Monday, they said it was coming by Friday and now its Sunday night. Check out the Awesomeness of this application and device below courtesy of Google Mobile.
It’s so easy, this 10 year old boy can use it. However it isn’t without controversy
“Google’s carefully orchestrated launch of their new voice-recognition search application for the iPhone took a dive this weekend. The application didn’t appear as promised, and Google took down the YouTube video demo’ing the product (although it’s still on the Google Channel YouTube page and embedded below).
This is an extraordinary event. Other search app providers have told me they’ve been kept waiting months for approval of their app, with no explanation from Apple. But Google and Apple are close, even sharing Google CEO Eric Schmidt as a board member. Something definitely went sideways, most likely involving Apple throwing a fit of some sort (Apple is just plain weird about press).
Note our report last week “-TechCrunch

“Alright, alright, alright” (allegedly) – Matthew McConauhey. Yesterday Thunk Different posted it’s highest traffic day of all time. Officially 4277 visitors on 10/13/2008. That kicks ass. Also, I bought a 36 HDTV for $250 off of Craigslist today. That also kicks ass. Go, go HD macbooks!
‘Alright, alright, alright!”

This is a random office for a random worker on a random day... now with Video.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin – The net is abuzz with Google’s new web browser, dubbed, Chrome. It is a game changer based on the Apple, Inc. web kit that smokes Safari. Sleeker, faster, and boasting “uncrashable windows” (so instead of your browser locking up, only a tab will essentially fail and the rest of the tabs, or “engines” will keep on ticking.” So it is said. However, I am less excited about that Google buzzness as I am about Google video for business. Isn’t business what it’s all about? (After peace love and happiness of course!)
So why should I care?
If you work at a company that embraces change and creativity, this is fantastic that’s why you should care. It opens up a forum for video-to-video responses that pave the way to displace company email. Well… most companies wont take it that far (yet), but they could. (see video below)
Google for Business is a Google’s Web “App” (i.e. Application) that will be able to have figure heads communicate with the specks of dust like myself.
This invariably will lead to some very funny moments as executives make gaffes and company’s have their own viral videos (all in good fun of course). I can just imagine what sort of hijinks the folks at Comedy Central or the Onion could have with this. Lot’s, I’ll bet.
So as it is a video service push forth the power that is new media and web 2.0 I’ll quit with the script and let you see a video for yourself. It’s easy to sign-up too. However as i am still that speck, I don’t dare do this – however I could perhaps send my bosses news through a video channel outside the internet. It’s a lil’ something I created when I was higher up on the ladder and video was first getting popular, the channel is called, youtube.com/testimonials. But that’s another story…

The site provides the screenshot above, plus a set of demonstration videos that can
’t actually be played because they have either been removed or set to private. We’ve uploaded the splash screens to these videos so you can at least get a fuzzy sense of what Chrome’s features look like.
